Liverpool vs. Bayern Munich - Football Match Report

Liverpool vs. Bayern Munich - Football Match Report

Bayern are now unbeaten away from home in the UEFA Champions League since September 2017 (W6 D3).

'The positive of course is the result, it's the best possible draw you can get but we can play better, we should play better.

'My team in defence and as a whole kept everything tight at the back and played at a high level, tactically and mentally. "I think second half we were better on the ball without creating anything, and so were they and that's why there were probably so few chances in the second half".

Liverpool were last in action against Bournemouth ten days ago and the manager has made two changes to his side from that day.

Virgil van Dijk is suspended, whilst Roberto Firmino and Gigi Wijnaldum could also miss out. It didn't happen, but 0-0 is a good result and they've got to be experienced enough to know that.

However, after Liverpool were stifled by Bayern's defensive masterclass, Klopp will head home to Germany for next month's second leg facing a tough task to get the upper hand at last.

"At the end of the season, we can hopefully say we're champions of one if not both".

A wayward Andrew Robertson header gave Gnabry the chance to cross only for the Bayern man to miscontrol at the key moment, and then Salah shot off target for the hosts.

"When I talk like an expert, a pundit, I think Liverpool are stronger".

Robert Lewandowski remains the Champions League's top scorer this season with eight goals, but he has netted only twice in 12 away Champions League games for Bayern.

But crucially they managed to subdue Liverpool's usually lethal forward line, keeping the Bundesliga in with a chance of having at least one team in the quarter-finals. "Maybe we could have scored a goal". It's how we approach every game and that's what we need to do.

"It's hard for me to answer the question but for all Liverpool fans it's the Premier League".

"It was a pragmatic Bayern tonight, they weren't going to win that tie at Anfield, just because Liverpool were cut short at the back in terms of personnel, it wasn't going to be won tonight on this performance".

"Shaq did a lot, so it will be close, we have to see".
